The steady increase in the sterility of the omnipresence of the world has led to the promotion of assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatment. In this surrogacy as an alternative where infertile couples can have the baby through this process. Surrogacy is an arrangement in which a surrogate carries and offers a child for the couple commissioning. Surrogacy is the most common type of surrogacy is considered legal by many state laws. In gestational surrogacy, an embryo that is fertilized by in vitro fertilization (IVF) is implanted in the uterus of a surrogate who carries the pregnancy for nine months and gave birth to a healthy baby. In traditional surrogacy, which is not popular and is also considered illegal by many state laws, the surrogate is impregnated with the sperm of the father placed by AI therapy (AI). During traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother is genetically related to the newborn child. Therefore, this type of surrogacy is prohibited by most state laws.

At first glance, the process of surrogacy seems to be a very attractive alternative for poor women that much money for this process. Couples start your baby connect biologically desired length, but the actual fact discloses the bitter truth. In most countries such as England, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Italy, agreements surrogacy and substitution are considered illegal. These countries do not allow these two types of surrogacy. Therefore, infertile couples in these countries come from India, United States, Ukraine and California, where surrogacy is considered legal. However, it is painful to know that none of these countries have adequate surrogacy laws. Due to the lack of appropriate legislation and transparency in the system, both for union formation and substitution exploited and the benefits generated by intermediaries. There may be opportunities to get involved in legal trouble, because none of these countries have regulations and transparency in laws governing surrogacy.

When couples begin to visit other countries to realize their dreams of parenthood to have a biological child, they have to fight a long legal battle across cultural and language barriers to get her baby. Even if all goes well with couples commissioning must remain at least two to three months to complete the formalities after the birth of a newborn. While couples designed to face all these difficulties, surrogates have another set of problems. Things with surrogates are even worse and unethical. If substitutes are selected from rural, brokers constantly exploited. Sometimes, these women do not receive the full compensation paid by the intended parents.

In conclusion, we can say that if the couple commissioning desire to have their own biological child, they should contact the agency where they will be better guided and legal ethics, where agencies conducted psychological research and legal advice for the surrogacy (mandatory in the United States). If you can find the best agency, then you can make your dreams of parenthood without legal and ethical problems.
